TVS Jupiter ZX IntelliGo Starlight Blue
Soon, other scooters from the firm’s portfolio will likely feature the tech too

TVS has introduced its new stop-start system named “intelliGO” on its Jupiter 110cc scooter. Available on the ZX disc variant, the scooter with the tech is priced at Rs. 72,347/- (ex-showroom, Delhi), just below the Classic trim.

According to TVS, the Jupiter is the first 110cc scooter to feature the stop-start technology, which it claims improves fuel economy while reducing emissions.

The system switches off the engine during long idling, while a simple twist of the throttle would bring the motor back to life, thereby avoiding fuel wastage and bringing emissions down.

Apart from featuring the TVS intelliGO technology, the Jupiter does not sport any changes be it mechanical or aesthetic. Thus, it continues to be powered by a 110cc engine generating a maximum of 7.4 HP at 7000 RPM and 8.4 Nm peak torque at 5500 RPM.

It also comes with an LED headlight, semi-digital instrument cluster, dual tone seat, 3-step adjustable rear suspension, 21-litre storage, 2-litre glove box and a mobile charger.

The TVS Jupiter ZX variant is available with 2 colour options and they are – Starlight Blue and Royal Wine.

Interestingly, the Jupiter Classic costs more than the ZX variant by a small amount

2020 TVS Jupiter Classic Review

Bike tested: TVS Jupiter Classic; Road Test No. 1246; Test Location: Mumbai

Price OTR Mumbai: Rs. 88,160/-

The TVS Jupiter now comes with FI and it has become better in some aspects

Gearless scooters have become the go-to thing for many people to satisfy their commuting needs. Over the years, we’ve seen numerous offerings from many brands but one of the most successful indigenous ones has been the TVS Jupiter. The TVS Jupiter came out to put a dent on the Honda Activa’s sales figures. While it has done so, it hasn’t really beaten it overall. For 2020, TVS has updated the Jupiter with some handy and practical features along with TVS’ EcoThrust FI, which improves the efficiency of the scooter. We recently got our hands on the BS6 Jupiter Classic, and here’s a detailed report of what we think about it!

Motor Quest: TVS introduced the Jupiter in 2013 and it took the market by storm, thanks to the impressive set of features at an aggressive price. Over the years, the Jupiter has stayed true to its nature and has remained a versatile and practical offering in the market. While the BS6 Jupiter might not look very different from the BS4 model or even the first model, the scooter has become better overall in various aspects.

2020 TVS Jupiter Classic Review 12
We are a little bored with the same design and we hope TVS updates it soon

Styling: Like most BS6 scooters, the TVS Jupiter has also retained its overall design. The scooter isn’t too different from the BS4 variant, but there are some noticeable bits. The scooter gets alloy wheels, a lot of beige panels, a tall tinted windscreen, chrome mirrors, dual-tone seat, LED tail lamp and an updated LED headlamp. To give it a more premium look and increase pillion comfort, you also get a backrest which gets cushioning as well. Apart from this, the Jupiter Classic also gets a new colour option, namely the Indiblue. To summarise, the BS6 TVS Jupiter Classic looks good and gives off a Vespa vibe styling-wise. The tall visor, beige panels, dual-tone seat, and the backrest, all make it look better than before.

2020 TVS Jupiter Classic Review 36
The speedometer looks exactly same as before and only a new engine malfunction light is present

Instrument Cluster and Switchgear: TVS has retained the old instrument cluster and switchgear setup for BS6. The setup is pretty ‘Classic’ and gets just an additional engine malfunction and a low-fuel telltale light along with an analogue speedometer, odometer, eco mode light, and a fuel gauge. All of it looks good in beige, though, and is easy to read, but a digital display is dearly missed. The switchgear has also remained the same, and the quality is up to TVS standards. We think an engine-kill switch would’ve been a nice addition, though. To summarise, the Jupiter Classic has remained unchanged in this department, and it can definitely do better here with some modern additions.

2020 TVS Jupiter Classic Review 16
The whole scooter is pretty spacious, and we like the ribbed seat design too

Ergonomics: The Jupiter has always been a comfortable scooter, and it still is. The posture is upright with a spacious footboard, and even tall riders will have nothing to complain about here. The seat is long as well and gets superb cushioning. Even the pillion sits comfortably and relaxed, thanks to the cushioned backrest. We also like the fact that TVS has added a utility box upfront to put your phone in while you make full use of the new USB port. Speaking of storage, the under-seat storage has increased as well, but it still cannot swallow a full-face helmet. The external fuel-lid is a practical addition too and helps you refuel effortlessly. Lastly, the chrome mirrors are decent as well, but they tend to vibrate at times which hinders the rearview.

2020 TVS Jupiter Classic Review 26
The addition of ET-Fi has made the Jupiter smoother and easier on the pocket

Performance: The performance has remained unchanged following the BS6 trend, and it’s a good thing. The 109.7cc motor makes 7.47 PS of power at 7000 RPM and 8.4 Nm of torque at 5500 RPM. The main and only difference engine-wise is the addition of ET-Fi (EcoThrust Fuel Injection). This has made the scooter smoother and peppier overall. The low-end grunt is good, and the midrange feels punchy too, while the top-end feels flat. The scooter feels pretty linear when you push it and there is no jerkiness to it. However, the sweet spot is between 45-60 km/hr.

2020 TVS Jupiter Classic Review 4
While the motor is punchy, there is no jerkiness anywhere

The engine has retained its previous performance figures, but it has become smoother and more linear

TVS has also claimed that Jupiter is now 15% more fuel-efficient. The Jupiter was already more fuel-efficient than its direct rivals in its previous iteration, and the bump in efficiency has made it even better. The scooter returned 50 km/l during our test. Along with the increase in efficiency, the Jupiter also has an additional 1-litre fuel capacity, which rounds up the total range to about 300 kms. All in all, the addition of FI has made the Jupiter better in terms of refinement and efficiency. However, we noticed a lot of vibrations in the accessories while riding, which makes you feel that the scooter is not refined.

2020 TVS Jupiter Classic Review 5
The ride quality is plush and comfort-oriented

Riding Dynamics: As the Jupiter retains its ergonomics, the riding dynamics are similar too. The rider’s triangle is upright and comfortable for city duties. At 765 mm, the seat height is on the lower side too, which makes the Jupiter suitable for shorter riders as well. The Jupiter gets telescopic front suspensions and gas shocks at the rear. The difference for BS6 is that the rear suspension is now adjustable across all variants. The overall suspension setup is on the softer side as it is, though, and the ride quality qualifies as plush. However, the soft suspension means that the Jupiter is not suitable for spirited riding.

2020 TVS Jupiter Classic Review 3
There isn’t a lot of grip on offer but it’s sufficient for city conditions

The TVS Jupiter is an ideal commuter scooter, and it does its duty well

Weight-wise, the Jupiter Classic is 1 kg heavier than the other variants, thanks to the additional accessories. While the weight isn’t felt, though, and the scooter remains easy to manoeuvre. One downside of the BS6 Jupiter is its brakes. TVS has removed the disc brake from the Classic variant and the drum brakes don’t really perform well. The sizes are standard at 130 mm but we dearly miss the disc brake which offered much better stopping power. It seems that TVS did this to keep the price in check, but it’s still a step in the wrong direction. To summarise, the TVS Jupiter still remains a superb commuter and has good riding dynamics for tight city roads.

2020 TVS Jupiter Classic Review 1
The Indiblue colour option looks excellent and there are no finishing issues

Verdict: For 2020, the TVS Jupiter is available in 4 variants, namely Standard, ZX, ZX with Disc, and the Classic and they cost Rs. 80,212/-, Rs. 82,707/-, Rs. 86,667/- and Rs. 88,160/-, respectively. These are not the lowest prices in the segment, but the Jupiter is still good value for money. There is good equipment on offer, some being even better than its direct rivals, and the ride comfort is super too. The Jupiter is also suitable for all variety of riders and ET-Fi makes it easier on the pocket too. However, we would recommend the ZX Disc variant over the Classic as it makes more sense and the only major difference is the absence of a windscreen and a backrest. The ZX Disc variant is cheaper too and gets TVS’ silent start system as well over the Classic variant.

2020 TVS Jupiter Classic Review 2
The rear-end of the Jupiter has remained exactly the same

What’s Cool

  • Looks premium, subtle and classic
  • Ride quality is plush and the low seat height makes it versatile
  • The refinement of the motor and the fuel-efficiency is excellent

What’s Not So Cool

  • The speedometer looks dated now
  • Lack of disc brake option in the top-spec variant
  • The variant-standard accessory visor tends to vibrate quite a bit
2020 TVS Jupiter Classic Review 17
Pillion comfort was clearly a priority as the scooter gets a cushioned backrest

TVS Jupiter ZX Disc Price
Addition of a disc brake upfront is a welcome move, but the price hike is not

TVS has launched the Jupiter ZX Disc variant with a price tag of Rs. 69,052/- (ex-showroom, Delhi), a difference of a little under Rs. 4000/- from the ZX drum variant.

Launch of disc brake variant, says TVS, is “in line with TVS Motor Company’s continuous endeavour to provide best-in-class features which cater to the evolving need of Indian customers”.

According to the manufacturer, the scooter also comes with an upgraded electric start technology called “i-TOUCHstart”, which “provides a silent and instant start minus the cranking noise, making it ideal for repeated starts in stop-go traffic”.

The technology is also said to improve battery life, and TVS claims that it is maintenance free.

As the name suggests, the TVS Jupiter ZX disc price hike is due to the addition of a front disc brake which is a welcome addition, as it will provide additional stopping power and improve the safety for the rider.

Other notable features offered on the scooter are all-in-one lock to operate the ignition, steering lock, seat lock and fuel tank cap, 2-litre glovebox, 21-litre under seat storage and mobile charger.

Equipped with ET-Fi technology, TVS Jupiter ZX disc’s 110cc engine produces 8 BHP of peak power and 8 Nm of max torque, all the while delivering a claimed 15 percent better economy. The scooter gets adjustable shocks as well.

Paint scheme options on the scooter are currently limited to just three and they are – Matte Starlight Blue, Starlight Blue and Royal Wine.

TVS Jupiter vs Honda Activa 6G
TVS Jupiter vs Honda Activa 6G Spec Comparison

When you think of gearless scooters, the first scooter that comes to mind is the Honda Activa. Over the years, the Activa has undergone many changes, but one thing has remained the same- its chart-topping sales figures. To tackle the Activa, TVS introduced the Jupiter in 2013 and while it became pretty successful, it couldn’t really shake the Activa’s crown. Curious about how their BS6 models fare against each other? That’s exactly why we’re here, as we do a specs comparison of the new TVS Jupiter and Honda Activa 6G.

TVS Jupiter vs Honda Activa 6G Design

Sadly, both scooters keep most of their old styling elements and there are no major changes for the BS6 models as such. Both scooters look decent and have a commuter-type feel to them. Talking about the Honda, the Activa has always been too vanilla for my taste and sadly, it’s received almost no major changes to its design over the years, other than the addition of LED DRLs and some bits here and there.

The Jupiter, on the other hand, has always looked sharper than the Activa. The new Jupiter also gets alloys, windshield, and a pillion back-rest as standard which enhance the overall design of the scooter. Further, the Jupiter gets beige plastic between the seat and the handle, while the Activa 6G gets black coloured ones. The Jupiter also gets various chrome touches. Finally, TVS really went all-in with the colour options as the Jupiter gets 13 colour options to choose from whereas the Activa 6G has only 6 colours on offer.

TVS Jupiter vs Honda Activa 6G Features

Both TVS and Honda have equipped their respective products with many features, and both scooters are feature-rich in their own way. The Honda Activa 6G gets features like LED headlamp with LED daytime running lamps (DRLs), LED turn indicators, Integrated dual function switch, engine start/stop switch etc. as standard. For the icing on the cake, it also gets Honda’s silent start system. While the TVS Jupiter misses out on features like LED DRLs, silent start system and LED turn indicators, it gets some exclusive features of its own. The Jupiter comes with alloys, USB charging port, extra storage space, windshield, pillion backrest and a dual-tone seat as standard while the Activa misses out on all these. Some variants of the Jupiter even get Bluetooth connectivity.

TVS Jupiter vs Honda Activa 6G Performance

The TVS Jupiter has a single-cylinder 109.7cc engine which produces 7.8 BHP at 7500 RPM and 8.4 Nm of torque at 5500 RPM while powering the Activa 6G is a single-cylinder 109.51cc engine which churns out 7.68 BHP at 8000 RPM and 8.79 Nm of torque at 5250 RPM. Both get a CVT transmission and fan-cooling. The story remains the same in the braking department, too. Both get 130 mm drum brakes as standard with a combi-braking system in the Honda and a synchronised braking system in the TVS, but the Jupiter gets a disc brake variant which is missing on the Activa 6G. The Activa gets a bigger fuel tank (5.3-litres) as compared to the Jupiter (5-litres), though. Both Honda and TVS also claim that the BS6 models are about 10-12% more fuel-efficient than their BS4 variants. We think both scooters have identical performance and both have fallen prey to the new stringent norms.

TVS Jupiter vs Honda Activa 6G Handling and Ergonomics

Like any other scooter in this segment, these two will also end up on city roads and both scooters will take you from point A to B with minimal effort or discomfort, as both have an upright and comfortable seating posture. The TVS Jupiter and Honda Activa 6G both have a lot in common here. The tyre size, seat height and suspension setup are exactly the same on both.

But the Activa has a higher ground clearance of 171 mm as compared to the Jupiter’s 150 mm. This means that the Jupiter will struggle on big potholes with two heavy people onboard. While the tyre sizes are identical, the rim sizes are not. The TVS gets both 12-inch wheels while the Honda gets a 12-inch front wheel and a 10-inch rear wheel. But, because the Activa is 2 kgs lighter and has a slightly shorter wheelbase as compared to the Jupiter, the Activa will be easier to ride around the city.

TVS Jupiter vs Honda Activa 6G Verdict

With various similarities, it’s very hard to pick a winner between these very-capable scooters. This is where the pricing comes in. The TVS Jupiter retails at Rs. 86,295/- (on-road Mumbai) while the Honda Activa 6G costs Rs. 83,656/- (on-road Mumbai). This makes the TVS Jupiter dearer by about Rs. 3000/- and this is arguably the biggest difference between the two. Both scooters are extremely good at what they’re built to do and offer good value for the price but with alloys, chrome bits, windscreen, backrest, dual-tone seat, USB charger and a huge variety of colour options on offer, the Jupiter justifies the premium and it gets our vote.

TVS Jupiter BS6 Price
The scooter now comes with a new Indiblue colour option

TVS Motor Company yesterday announced their first BS6 product Apache RTR 200 4V and 160 4V. The Indian bike maker has now launched their first BS6 scooter, the TVS Jupiter Classic, which is priced at Rs. 67,911/- (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The bike maker has updated the engine top comply with the new BS6 emission norms and they call this engine technology as ET-Fi (Ecothrust Fuel injection) technology.

TVS claims that with the updated engine, the Jupiter delivers 15 percent better fuel efficiency than the BS4 model. The company hasn’t revealed the exact power figures for the BS6 engine yet but the BS4 109.7cc engine churns out 7.88 BHP and 8.4 Nm, which is expected to be more or less the same with the BS6 engine.

Along with this update, the Jupiter Classic now comes with a new Indiblue colour option. It gets a USB charger now in the front panel and mobile cubby space along with a tinted visor.

The Jupiter Classic BS6 is available with Sunlit Ivory and Autumn Brown colours as well. The TVS Jupiter Base, ZX and Grande editions will be updated with the BS6 engines in a phased manner.

TVS discontinues the feature-rich Jupiter Grande and gets new features to the ZX variant.

TVS Jupiter ZX Royal Wine
TVS Jupiter comes in two colour schemes

TVS has decided to discontinue the Grande variant of the Jupiter and has transferred the features to the ZX variant of the 2-wheeler. With new and updated features on the ZX variant of the Jupiter, the scooter is well versed to stack up against the market favourite Honda Activa 5G.

The Jupiter ZX variant comes in two models – drum brake and disc brake. The drum brake variant is priced at Rs. 56,093/-, while the disc brake variant comes in at Rs. 58,645/- (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). The Jupiter ZX now comes with an LED headlamp set-up, part digital instrument console, adjustable rear suspension and chrome highlighted rear-view mirrors.

The chrome highlighted rear-view mirrors are available only on the disc brake model of the Jupiter. However, the ZX trim misses out on some features like cross-stitched seat cover, diamond cut alloy wheels and other titbits that were seen on the Grande variant.

TVS continues to power the Jupiter ZX with the 109.7cc air-cooled, OHC engine that makes 8 BHP at 7500 RPM and 8 Nm of torque at 5500 RPM. The scooter is equipped with the company’s Sync Brake System, as standard. The ZX variant of the scooter will be available in two colour options – Starlight Blue and Royal Wine.

TVS is also working on a BS6 ready engine for the Jupiter and the next-gen Jupiter will come with new features and might also sport Bluetooth connectivity as seen on the NTorq 125. The BS6 compliant Jupiter is expected to hit the market by early-2020.

TVS Jupiter 125 with FI and disc brake spotted, launch expected in 2018.

TVS Jupiter 125 Fi Front Spotted
The TVS Jupiter 125 could feature fuel injection technology

The TVS Jupiter 125 was spotted heavily camouflaged bearing a Karnataka state registration plate. The scooter was equipped with front disc brake and also had a fuel injected powerplant as opposed to the carburetted unit found in the current 110cc Jupiter.

The scooter was equipped with O2 sensors while the choke lever was found missing too which leads us to the fact that the TVS Jupiter 125 features fuel injection technology. The spotted scooter also wore digital cum analogue speedometer unlike an analogue unit on the current selling Jupiter. Sources claim that this scooter has a 125cc heart.

The TVS Jupiter already rivals the Honda Activa in the 110cc segment, and seems like TVS is now wanting to grab a share of the 125cc scooter segment with this Jupiter 125 where the Honda Activa 125 and Suzuki Access 125 currently sell.

The current TVS Jupiter is powered by a 109.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that churns out 7.8 HP of power and 8 Nm of torque.

TVS Jupiter Long Term Review
The Jupiter currently is powered by a 110cc engine that produces 7.8 HP of power

TVS is planning to launch an electric version of its best-selling scooter, the Jupiter by June 2018. The Jupiter electric is expected to feature a lithium-ion battery with a range of up to 50 kms. Other than the electric scooters, TVS is also working on a hybrid scooter expected to launch by the end of this fiscal year.

The Government’s push for electric vehicles by 2030, has made every automaker in India take the electric technology seriously. Hero MotoCorp also invested a sum of Rs. 205 crores in Ather Energy which is an electric two-wheeler startup. Mahindra has acquired US-based electric vehicles company, GenZe, and will bring electric scooters in India by 2019.

Bajaj is working on a new brand called Urbanite which will make electric vehicles (both two-wheelers and three-wheelers) for both domestic and international markets. Companies like Hero Electric and Ampere Vehicles, on the other hand, already have been selling electric vehicles from the past 3-4 years and if reports are to be believed, till date, around 4.5 lakh electric two-wheelers have been sold in India (in the past 8 years).

TVS’ all-new electric scooter, which borrows design elements from the Jupiter, has been spotted in disguised form.

TVS Electric Scooter Spied
The prototype is equipped with alloy wheels, drum brakes and telescopic front forks

After its 1-year stint in the electric scooter market with the Teenz Electric, TVS is back at it again. A prototype of TVS’ new electric scooter has been spied in Bengaluru. The new 2-wheeler, which is identical to the popular TVS Jupiter in size and form, can be seen in a camouflaged state in the pictures. The connected charging wires, possibly plugged into a socket in the apartment, are a clear giveaway of its hybrid nature.

The spied vehicle, judging from the shape of its headlight, blinkers and fender, takes styling cues from the Jupiter. Front telescopic forks and drum-type brakes, over 12-inch alloy wheels, can be seen in the pictures. Based on the full-sized Jupiter, it seems to be benefiting in departments of comfort and space. Possibly equipped with a lithium-ion battery, the new vehicle is expected to have a range of 50 kms on a single charge. Rumours have it that the spied scooter is an early prototype and market launch can be expected around end-2018.

TVS Jupiter, in its petrol guise, is powered by a 109.7cc, air-cooled engine. The gearless scooter puts out a modest 8 PS of power with 8 Nm of torque. Relaunched recently in BS4 avatar at a price of Rs. 49,666/- (ex-showroom, Delhi), the unisex scooter has tasted success like no other TVS product. Credit for its popularity goes to the expansive feature list, neutral pleasing design and TVS’ marketing strategy. Taking Jupiter’s fame to its advantage, TVS seems to be utilising the opportunity to bring in an electric vehicle on the same lines.

A consumer court in Ahmedabad has directed TVS to either repair the TVS Jupiter scooter of the customer so that its fuel efficiency matches to that of the promise made in advertisement claims, or buy it back.

TVS Jupiter Mileage Report
The TVS Jupiter is known for being a trendy and fuel efficient automatic scooter

The average Indian consumer has traditionally been an ignored lot, often mired in snail-paced judiciary and un-caring corporates for whom customers are just a number on an excel sheet. But times have been changing and through consumer courts, customers have now got teeth and weapons to take on the fight to the wrong-doers. One of the recent incidents of the authorities standing up for the common-folk comes from Ahmadabad, where a court has ordered TVS India to either repair the customer’s TVS Jupiter scooter in order to deliver the fuel efficiency promise made in advertisement claims, or refund the amount of Rs. 52,000/- with which he had bought the vehicle.

A senior citizen of Rajkot city purchased a TVS Jupiter by paying Rs. 52,150/- in September 2014. The company sold the bike advertising that the model gives a fuel efficiency of 62 km/l. However, the customer was not satisfied as the Jupiter never returned the promised fuel efficiency numbers with him getting 43 km/l in May 2015, improving to 55 km/l in September 2015 and 65.51 km/l in March 2016, the latter most being higher than the company claimed mileage.

Even after repeated complaints and service visits, the fuel consumption did not improve. After getting an unsatisfactory response from the company, the customer decided to move Rajkot District Consumer Dispute Redressal Forum and demanded the amount paid towards the bike’s price be refunded because it did not give expected mileage. He also asked for Rs. 54,000/- towards petrol price as fuel consumption of the vehicle was too high.

After hearing both sides, the court cited six orders passed by different consumer courts across the country on similar issues. It noted that in all these cases, auto companies had to buyback the vehicles from the owners. Therefore, the court here also directed the customer to hand over the scooter to TVS service centre for repair so that it can ensure that the two-wheeler can return the advertised fuel consumption numbers.

If the court has made such a decision then maybe every person who files a complaint for not getting the advertised fuel efficiency, will get a buyback of their vehicle because ALL automobile companies in India over-state their mileage and their partner in crime is none other than government agency ARAI.
